How To Photograph Your Crafts
The absolute number one cause of rejection of DD suggestions for most Artisan Craft CVs is poor photography. There is nothing worse than seeing an otherwise brilliant piece ruined by a dodgy photo. But even beyond DD acceptance, if you want to people on dA to be able to appreciate your skill you need to be able to show your work off to advantage.
Sometimes I'll tell a self-suggester that I can't feature their work because of the quality of the photography and they'll inevitably reply, "Oh, I'll have to get a better camera."


Repeat after me: the tools never make the artist.
You don't need a $9000 sewing machine to stitch a dress, you don't need a $1000 stand mixer to bake a cake, and you similarly don't need a top of the range SLR to take a brilliant photograph. It's all in how you take the photo.
To help us understand photography concepts a little more, Fella is going to help us out. Say hi Fella!

I just made new made-to-order listings on Etsy for Midday Lycanroc, Charmander, Ponyta, Terriermon, and Lopmon! ^_^ Please check my Etsy shop if you're interesting in buying something! www.etsy.com/ca/shop/YukaminaC…



In other news, I've been thinking about things lately. I've been making plushies for over 4 years now and while my skills have improved a lot over time, my prices have barely changed. The cost of materials has also increased considerably. Basically I've been making things hard for myself, and I've just pushing myself to make more instead of just raising prices to reflect the time, effort, skill, and cost of materials. So I've decided to raise my prices. Next time I open commissions the new prices will be in effect.




Thank you all for your support!

Vinyl Scratch Chibi Plush
Here's a pony chibi plush! I started her while I was working on a Vinyl plush for someone, and didn't have time to finish her until today. This plush is 8" tall, made of minky, and has machine embroidered eyes, shades, and cutie mark. Her glasses attach easily with magnets.

Vinyl Scratch is also for sale! You can find her on my Etsy shop if you are interested:

Hey I just had an inquiry for you if you have the time to answer ( I sent you a note but I only made an account to send a message; ).
I just wanted to know if you possibly ship to Australia. I have a cosplay convention in April and I was going to go as an artists representation of Rosa and I wanted to go  with Pokemon plushies but the only good ones I could find were yours.
I was either hoping to get two chibi ones or if possible a standing plush similar to your Flareon (An Eeveelution or Ninetails and Alolan Vulpix if even possible).

I'm so sorry if I'm bothering you, I'm new to commissions let alone messaging people on deviantArt.

I'm curious, I was thinking of drawing a picture of a plush I'd like to have of my oc, proportions and pose and whatnot, and I've been wanting to ask various plush makers for price ranges. Is that a good idea?

Hi! I love all your plush designs, so cute! Also, I recently decided to try learning out to sew plushes of my own and am wondering if you have any online shops that you recommend for getting started and buying supplies?

Thank you for any recs you can offer ^__^

Hi~ I buy Shannon Cuddle 3 solid minky from fabric.com Some people don't like that site, but they have a wide color selection and cheaper shipping options for Canada (other minky shops charge an awful lot to ship up here). I get stuffing, thread, and other supplies locally. And machine embroidery is another story ^^; Thanks for liking my plushies!
